 Fish & Wildlife Announces Endangered Species Candidates
In October, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service identified three new candidate species for protection under the Endangered Species Act. They are the bracted twistflower, a Texas flower found primarily in the Austin area; the Poweshiek skipperling (see photo above), a butterfly found in the upper Midwest; and the magnificent ramshorn, a snail found in North Carolina. In addition, three species were removed from the candidate list: the Wekiu bug, which lives atop Hawaii’s Mauna Kea volcano, and the Gila and the New Mexico springsnails.
